Sabot Bases for Infantry

I recently based up some 20mm Commonwealth infantry onto Combat HQ platoon bases. The movement bases were bought from Warbases and hold three figures each. They allow figures to be formed into Combat HQ platoons, with the added benefit of being easily removed for use in single figure games.
